Specification of wave in Open Channel Wave BC
1 Attachment(s)
I am modeling a wave-flume, and I am having trouble producing the waves I want. I have read through the ship-hull tutorial, and searched the interwebs.
Time for a post. I have attached a screenshot of my problem. This is not the wave I was looking for, as the dialog indicates.

To be specific, the wave in the picture looks to be about:
H=.17m, L=0.5m
, while the specified wave is clearly:
H=.10m, L=2.0m

I have hunch that this may have to do with the velocity setting on the Momentum tab. I have set it to 0, because I do not want any steady current.

Can someone advise?
